Northeastern College of Engineering’s annual celebration of the engineering profession will take place in the month of February, primarily in the week of February 19-25. The theme of this year's Engineers Week is "Engineers Dream Big".
Every project, great or small, starts with a dream. A dream to create and build. Engineers engage their creativity and technical know-how to transform dreams into reality. They are dreamers across the professional spectrum from transportation, to agriculture, to medicine and beyond.
The College of Engineering will host several events to celebrate how engineers make a difference in our world.
Events are free and open to the public unless stated otherwise.
|9:30am - 3:00pm|
The Women in Engineering Day is offered by the Society of Women Engineers (SWE) as an event for high school girls and their parents to find out more about our program. This year’s title is “Cool Women/Hot Careers”. The day starts out with a welcome Continental breakfast, an information presentation, and a student panel of engineering women ready to answer questions. Over lunch, chat with SWE students in small groups. The afternoon includes engineering activities with interesting and informative activities. Registration required (When you get to step three, make sure you choose February 18 - Women in Engineering). Event is open to high school students and their parents only.

Northeastern University's Center for STEM Education* will be hosting elementary students from two local Boston schools to learn about our campus and Engineering. Please note that these events are not open to the public.
* The Center for STEM with the support of our undergraduate and graduate students will offer over 1,000 urban students the opportunity to learn about engineering and college life. COE student volunteers assist with the design and delivery of these on and off campus offerings. The Center is also accepting applications for their summer STEM and Young Scholars Programs for middle and high school students.Location: McLeod Suites
